Symbian, N8, N900 Thoughts and Questions

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Tonight I was thinking, as I so often do, about mobile phones, how my current usage dictates what I buy and use, and how a different device, in one way or the other, can benefit or change my current experience of a mobile device. (more…)

Oh the seasons

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Well, lets see what we can do with this update…

Not a whole lot is new. We’ve dropped off all our application material to the USDA Rural Housing division and are waiting to hear back from them about whether or not we’ve been approved for a mortgage…I can only hope. I can’t describe how happy I would be to have a house of my own, one where we don’t have to listen to the park’s bullshit rules, deal with the ever increasing rent, etc. By their application it says 21 days is when it should be completed in, but they said it would be between 4 and 8 weeks because of their current workload…so we have to wait a bit, but we can only hope. There’s a few houses we like, and if we could move before the snow flies, that would be amazing.

I’ve been neglecting my blog a lot lately, but I’ve been really busy, working at least 60 hours/week most weeks lately. It’s been that way at work, lots to get done and I’m the only one who can do most of it. I am getting a fair bit worn out, but it happens. Hopefully things slow down a bit so I don’t have to work all the time. After this week it should slow down quite a bit. Only a few smaller projects that I have to take care of now.

Today is Sophie and Lola’s second birthday. That means we’ve had Sophie nearly a year already. She’s still quite the puppy, but she’s definitely pretty well behaved. They’re some of the best dogs I’ve ever had. Lola is a bit more of a spoiled puppy than Sophie is, a lot like Romeo because that’s how she was spoiled from her previous owner.

I’ve got to get my N900 sent in again to get the dust cleaned out from under the screen and fix the 2 bright spots that are in my screen. Though, Nokia World is coming up here in 10 days, and they’ll be announcing their new phones there, including the N9! I’m very excited to hear about it and see that exactly the phone is and the specifications. If it’s anything like what I’ve heard, I’m definitely going to be purchasing one. I miss AT&T 3G support very much.

Now…the weather…WTF. It’s been low-mid 60s pretty much all weekend, yet it’s supposed to get 80s this week, and then 60s in between them…oh Michigan weather, how I love you. Now hurry up and get some snow here so I can have some fun in it!

Well, I hope everyone (In the US at least) is enjoying their Labor day! That’s all for now.



Check it out!

Just a very quick update for everyone. I now have a mobile version of my site setup, and it’s live. The theme is very close to the normal site so you shouldn’t see many differences.

To see this, either visit the site from (nearly) any mobile device (and if yours doesn’t work, just let me know), or you can click the “Return to the Mobile Edition” link that you can see in many places on the site.

As always, if you find anything wrong, just let me know in the comments!



Nokia N900 MMS support with fMMS

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Following up from my post a long time ago about the Nokia N900 not supporting MMS natively here, this post is to elaborate on the state of affairs now.

frals from has written an application called fMMS. You can see the announce thread here. As of the time of this writing, it currently resides in extras-devel, but it is a very solid application and seems to work very well with minimal issues/configuration. Though, if you do need help, you can follow the help page here.

That’s all for now.



Nokia N900 MMS Support

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

I heard information about the Nokia N900 not supporting MMS upon launch.  I was curious about it so I decided to email their support and ask.  I didn’t get the kind of response I was looking for, but here it is nonetheless (formatting edited for readability).
